The Proudest Blue written by Ibtihaj Muhammad with S. K. Ali illus. by Hatem Aly

This beautiful story about the bonds of sisterhood is going to be my favorite book this year. It’s told through the eyes of Faizah, whose older sister is wearing a blue hijab on their first day of school. It’s an insightful look into bullying in a way that isn’t scary or traumatic for younger children going into school: The story, like Faizah, focuses on her sister’s strength and the words of her kinder classmates. - MJ

Saturday by Oge Mora

This splendid book by Caldecott honoree Oge Mora is an ode to resilience and the mother– daughter bond. Since Ava’s mother works “Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday,” Saturday is their special day together. The beautiful collage art is so charming and really makes the love between the pair palpable. When their plans go awry, the touching twist at the end provides a heartwarming conclusion that brought tears to my eyes. A great choice for any and everyone! - Stephanie

Akin by Emma Donoghue

Emma Donohue (best-selling author of Room) proves her prowess as a multi-talented author in her newest novel.  Whereas Room was powerful for its gut-hitting plot and heart-racing psychological story, Akin stands out for its humor and intimate character development. When widowed, elderly Noah gets a call from Social Services, he is thrown overnight into being the sudden guardian for his 11-year old great nephew Michael. Through a series of twists and turns, the two find themselves in Nice, France, Noah’s long ago child hood home. What follows is a delightful tale of intrigue and adventure, but what stands out, is Donohue’s gentle use of humor and heart, as we watch these two, old and young, forge a bond that they are each in desperate need of. - S.M.C.

The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow

This is a novel of urgent and aching beauty. It’s a story about coming of age, triumph in the face of tragedy, and the power of magic, love, and dreams—and holding on to those dreams even when the stately order of the world threatens to crush them beneath its grinding wheels. This is a stunning and gorgeously written debut historical fantasy with a ferociously beating heart, and its fabulously drawn characters, outstanding plotting and pacing, and gorgeous world-building will sweep you effortlessly into its story. - Stuart

Raise High the Roof Beam, Carpenters and Seymour by J.D. Salinger

Did Salinger invent wry humor, or just perfect it? Either way, you’re guaranteed to enjoy lots of it in this two-novella collection, which follows a few older siblings of the Glass family (think Franny; think Zooey). Sure to break your heart in the most forgiving of ways. - Jess

Seven Blades in Black by Sam Sykes

Sal the Cacophony is a gunslinging wizard-hunter on a mission of vengeance, and—armed with a giant sentient handgun—she’s on the hunt for seven vicious outlaw magicians. This book is brutal and bloody with big battles and lots of action, but also features rich, inventive worldbuilding, snappy dialogue, and characters with surprising humor and heart. I couldn’t put it down! - Stuart

Life is a Party by David Burtka

David Burtka might be best known as the husband of Neil Patrick Harris, but he is also a Cordon Bleu–trained chef and former caterer who throws killer parties. He clearly loves to cook and entertain (just take a look at his Instagram account!), but what’s even more apparent from this book is that he loves the joy that comes from bringing a group of people together. In Life Is a Party, he celebrates moments big and small—from New Year’s Eve to game night—with great menus, party themes, decorations, and inspiration. - S.B.

The Moon by Oliver Morton

“Our Moon, a spherical bit of unchanging inanimate rock, nonetheless captivates us with its romance and its beauty. Its tantalizing almost deceptive proximity makes it also a destination, both a past one and a promising one for the future. In this poetically written and informative book, Oliver Morton takes us through all aspects of this very familiar but very foreign territory, which has inspired stories and study for decades. What a remarkable achievement.”  —Lisa Randall

The Human Swarm by Mark W. Moffett

Called a “daring eco-adventurer” by Margaret Atwood, biologist Mark W. Moffett draws on a range of disciplines, from sociology to anthropology, to analyze the way humans organize and look at what causes societies to rise, conquer, and ultimately fall. Comparing humans to their closest relatives in the animal kingdom such as bonobos and chimps as well as distant cousins like insects, gives The Human Swarm an intriguing take on history akin to titles like Sapiens and Guns, Germs, and Steel. - Aric
